Manchester United manager David Moyes is prepared to axe as many as 10 players this summer in a radical shift in transfer policy, with the Daily Mail reporting that Ashley Young, Shinji Kagawa and Tom Cleverley's futures are all up for consideration.
Moyes is under pressure to start next season in style after a disastrous first Premier League campaign in charge of Old Trafford, which has seen them miss out on Champions League qualification and fail to make their mark in any cup competitions.
Captain Nemanja Vidic has already confirmed his exit and Moyes is ready to let a number of stars leave this summer to make room for a spending spree, with those plans now taking focus after a spirited effort against Bayern Munich in the Champions League ultimately came up short.
The Mail believe that veteran full-back Patrice Evra has past point of no return in terms of staying at United beyond this summer, with the French international's contract expiring at the end of the season and no sign of fresh terms.
United are also considering whether Ryan Giggs, Kagawa, Cleverly, Alexander Buttner, Young, Cleverley, Anderson and Darren Fletcher figure in his future plans, with no concrete decision made over those stars at this stage.
Moyes remains adamant that his transfer plans will not be affected by a lack of Champions League football this season, but a poor domestic campaign is almost certain to see a number of established figures pay the price and be forced to move on this summer.
